Good German brew Review by brewerJim

Did nothing to the recipe brewed as directed. Matched to other German beers I have had. Give it a try.

Good full bodied Albier Review by Koosman

Kind of reminds me of the Altbier I had in Germany 4 years ago. When I made it I aged it for 3 months in the secondary and it helped because I didn't like it when first tasting it. Now its ok and I enjoy drinking it.

The beer I made with this kit is just like the one I had in Germany. It's a real pleasure to drink this full bodied tasty beer. After it fermented for a few weeks, I bottled it and let it sit for a couple of months before drinking.

This is a good kit! Lots of malty flavor and the hops are balanced well. I used white labs yeast, and it was amazing!

I liked this kit. The added malts helped give it a really nice flavor. The hops were nicely balanced for my taste too.

Good full bodied toasty beer Review by William

Its not overpowering but its not weak, its just right. Even my wife and sisters like it. I gave it one month in the primary, then bottled it and gave it two months to carbonate. The flavor improves a lot if you give it time to sit. I used the Wyeast liquid yeast because I read it gives better taste than teh dry yeast.

Altbier done right Review by Tony

This kit makes a seriously good Altbier. Its a nice full bodied Altbier and I can taste the hints of Chocolate from the specialty grain. After fermenting I let it clear for a month in a carboy and gave it a month to bottle condition. Now we are enjoying it.

This is my house-beer: needs to be always on tap and great taste (everyone loves it), so I just ordered 3 more!

Awsome. Simply awsome Review by Barry

I`ve been brewing mostly big beers so I wanted to try a lower gravity so I can have more than 2 or 3. This was also my first one with liquid yeast, the 1007.Followed directions to the T and it came out perfect ! Not to malty or hoppy but both are present. Great head retention and lacing.Just a nice flavorful beer to have a few mugs of. When I start kegging this would make a great "house" beer. Even though its a dark beer , its my house ! Thanks guys
